I’m a junkie when it comes to Mexican food (one bowl burritos for example or freezer burritos) . Tacos for dinner, I’m in heaven!! When we went to Chicago, my favorite meal was from Whole Foods…a burrito bowl. I like salsa, chips, spices, and more spices. I make up my own recipes all the time because I crave Mexican food. If you’re in the mood for Mexican food, check out this Verde Creamy Chicken Enchiladas (thank me later) recipe with NO cream of anything soup. Oh and if you’re on Weight Watchers, I’ve got your back.
